3rd ESRS Sleep Science School - FREJUS - 26 sept - 1st october 2021
After the success of the 1st ESRS Sleep Science School “Neural Networks in Sleep” in 2017 and the 2nd ESRS Sleep Science School “Sleep and Aging” in October 2019, the ESRS board has decided to continue supporting the organization of thematic schools aimed at gathering early career sleep scientists around different fundamental topics, allowing them to gain knowledge, share their work and experience, meet experienced researchers, develop opportunities and create novel networks of excellence.
The third edition of the ESRS Sleep Science School will focus on “The Functions of Sleep”, and will be held again at the CNRS Villa Clythia site in the city of Frejus at the Mediterranean Sea (South France), from 26 September to 1 October 2021. ESRS members Philippe Peigneux, Pierre-Hervé Luppi and Tom de Boer will coordinate this 3rd edition. The program will be highly proactive and aimed at a maximal involvement of participants. It will include in-depth lectures by a faculty of international sleep experts on topics related to the functions of sleep (both human and animal work), together with presentation and discussion of the participants’ own research. The agenda will also include interactive workshop sessions aimed at writing research grants and proposals, and in-depth exchanges between early career and experienced researchers. Importantly, faculty members will be present during the entire week, participate in the group activities, and be available for theoretical and practical discussions with early career researchers.
